We just got back from a 30-hour whirlwind of a trip to Alabama. We celebrated Birthday after Birthday. Despite the hustle and bustle, we were so refreshed from getting to spend time with "our people."
Stop 1: Montgomery, AL for Oliver Blackburn's Where the Wild Things Are 1st Birthday party.
We left from IHS at 2:30, braved through Birmingham traffic, and got in town to give the Hartzog family a hug before meeting Kevin, Brit, and Ollie for dinner at Cuco's. We enjoyed the delicious food and good company. After checking out the Birthday decor and letting the kiddos play in Oliver's new Cozy Coupe, we headed to stay at Hannah and Jeremy's to finally meet sweet Nolan and spend some good time with them.
We enjoyed the festivities of Oliver's party. Britani left no detail overlooked, and everything was perfect.
Stop 2: Huntsville, AL, for Eli and Caroline Stapler's 3rd and 1st Birthday party
After doing some quick Christmas shopping and driving by our old house, we headed North to Huntsville to celebrate with Eli and Caroline. We enjoyed seeing Amy and Scott's beautiful new home, and we are so happy they are so much closer. Unfortunately, we didn't have our camera out when Caroline dug into her smash cake. It was truly a sight to be seen--so adorable, and we felt so blessed to get to share in these special events in our special friends' lives.
We only wish we'd had the time to stop and see all of our beloved friends between our house and Monkey town, but we crammed every single thing we could into this 30-hour escapade.
Now, it's onto celebrating my birthday! YAY!
